New York City's use of camera-issued traffic tickets may be letting repeat traffic offenders off the hook, according to an analysis by its Office of Comptroller. The report was issued in the wake of several high-profile car accidents, including one that claimed the lives of two children.
Most New York residents understand what it means when they see a stop sign or a red light. However, there are times in which a motorist may not come to a complete stop or deliberately disobey the rule. Drivers may be cited if they perform a rolling stop or do not adhere to right-of-way laws in the jurisdiction where the infraction takes place.
Driving used to be simpler. Aside from your screaming kids in the back seat and the hot coffee in your cup holder, you could focus most of your attention on the road. But as technology has advanced and your personal devices have started following you everywhere you go, your connectivity to our family and friends is virtually limitless.
